a nation of starving people
stare out from the color tv
an angry child spits out its crusts
and drowns the world in screams
young mother in court for tax evasion
she can't afford to pay for a new more powerful missile
but she doesn't have a say so
did those feet in ancient times
walk upon england's mountains green
if they did they can't think very much of what they've seen
the fields are covered in concrete now
the countryside is dead
the trees are being felled and the rivers run red
that's right just get on with your life
get a good seat for you
never bother to think about how things could and should be
let them tell you what to do
control the way you think
this is country where it can be a criminal offence to wink
